Five weeks are behind them and the learning continues for the 27 participants in the EMC cluster training program being run in the Halifax region. The recent meeting held at Transcontinental’s Dartmouth facility was used to get some feedback on the course so far and to begin to look to the future for what we can do next.
Roger and Leigh chat with participants on the value
This week marks the mid-point of the first classes in the Department of Labour and Advanced Education / EMC cluster training program. The Essential Skills program offered by the province is a great way for manufacturers to get FREE customized and relevant training for their staff. The purpose of the program is to address the Essential Skills needed in today's economy to enhance the capability of the workforce and the competitiveness of the companies involved. The focus of the three classes currently being run in HRM is "Communication for Supervisors" and the feedback from the participants was all positive.
EMC's involvement allows companies of all sizes and training needs to participate with the added benefit of a mix of industries in each class, allowing for some great networking and sharing.
This cluster will continue to grow in the fall, with new subjects or an expansion on the current theme as required by all involved.
Stay tuned for a report on the "grad" ceremony and thanks to Roger Peters from the province, Leigh Gillis our instructor and all who are participating. Special thanks to EMC members Transcontinental and Amirix for allowing the cluster to "go to school" in their facilities.
